  •  Overworked and underpaid Silicon Valley entrepreneur was tired of the 80 work weeks and $40, 000 salaries. With an abundance of energy and vivacity for life Tim was tired of the “deferred life plan” (slave – save – retire) before he hit the age of 30. Determined to live instead of living to work Tim challenged himself to overcome time and mobility in order to live a balanced, and luxurious lifestyle. In an age of information overload Tim was chained to his desk and was constantly communicating through email via a Blackberry or laptop. With aspirations of being part of the New Rich culture Tim created a simple to follow lifestyle acronym in order to become part of this New Rich group of living in the now while balancing work. He calls his time management methodology DEAL – Define, Eliminate, Automate and Liberate. Living his methodology Tim says he works 4 hours a week while making on average $40,000 a month. Always perfecting and pushing the envelope with his methodology here are is a quick overview of how to become liberated and work a supposed 4 hour workweek. Critics are quick to point out that because Tim enjoys what he does not everything he does is considered work by his definition but he does state that although everyone may not be able to work a 4 hour workweek his tips will help anyone double their income, cut your hours in half and double your vacation time.

      “90% of ‘urgent’ issues can actually wait.” – Tom Hunter, Partner, Gowlings

      Trends since 1990s:

    • 43. The Prioritization Problem

      We need to “make time”
      The Truth:
      We cannot; we have all the time there is1
      86,400 seconds per day each2
      Use according to our priorities
      Never enough time to do it all
      Remember the trends
      How to ensure important things get done?
    • 44. Solutions - Past, Present, & Future
    • 45. 4-Quadrant Model of Prioritization
      Tasks / activities categorized by importance and urgency3
      Quadrant 1: Important and Urgent
      • Fire-Fighting
      • 46. Appear effective in short run, but burn out
      • 47. E.g. Key customer needs information ASAP
      Quadrant 2: Important, but Not Urgent
      • Proactive Planning
      • 48. Have to make time
      • 49. E.g. Planning next week’s activities
      Quadrant 3: Not Important, but Urgent
      • Tension-relieving to-dos
      • 50. Not goal-achieving
      • 51. E.g. Boss needs status report ASAP
      Quadrant 4: Not Important and Not Urgent
      • Time wasters
      • 52. Avoid at all costs!
      • 53. E.g. Water cooler gossip
    • 54. Exercise: Categorizing Activities
      In which quadrant would you place each of the following activities?
      You get a flat tire driving to a meeting
      Last-minute lunch with a banker re: funding
      An amusing You Tube video from a co-worker
      Determining how you will host a BET 600 workshop
      A flood in your R&D lab
      A co-worker needs to vent about their ex
      Significant other wants to watch TV with you

      Increase time spent in Quadrant 2
      Previous step should automatically reduce time spent in Quadrant 1, and stress
    • 57. How Do I Find More Time for Q2?
      There’s actually a 13th month each year2
      You just can’t see it on a calendar
      Look for it on a calculator:
      Start each work day one hour earlier!
      5 hours/week * 50 weeks = 250 extra hours
      250 extra hours / 8 hours/day = 31 extra days
      Use this extra hour each day for planning (Q2) and other important priorities
    • 58. How Do I Know What’s Important?3
      Morbid way:
      Imagine you’re attending your funeral
      How would a family member, friend, professional colleague, and community member pay you tribute?
      How do you want to be remembered?
      These are the things that are important to you!
      Cheerful way:
      Create a personal mission statement about:
      What you want to be
      What you want to achieve
    • 59. Presenting the 4 Hour Workweek from Tim Ferris:
    • 60. Just DEAL With It
      The 4 Hour Work Week Secret
      • define the problem, define your time
      • selective ignorance
      • outsource tedious tasks
      - Take a “mini retirement”
    • 61. The Timothy Ferriss 'not-to-do' list
      1. Do not answer calls from unrecognized phone numbers To do so would just results in unwanted interruption. Let it go to voicemail instead.
      2. Do not email first thing in the morning or last thing at night. The former scrambles your priorities and plans for the day; the latter gives you insomnia.
      3. Do not agree to meetings or calls with no clear agenda or end time.
      4. Do not let people ramble Forget "How's it going?" when someone calls. Stick with "I'm in the middle of getting something done, but what's going on?"
    • 62. The Timothy Ferriss 'not-to-do' list
      5. Do not check email constantly — check at set times only. Focus on the execution of your top to-do's, instead of responding to others' manufactured emergencies.
      6. Do not bother fixing small things. Define one single, most-important task for each day. Often, it's just a matter of letting little bad things happen (return a phone call late, pay a small late fee, lose an unreasonable customer).
      7. Take at least one day a week off of your digital leash. Turn it off or leave it at home. So what if you return a phone call an hour later or the next morning?
      8. Do not expect work to fill a void. Work is not all of life. Force yourself to work within tight hours. Focus, get the critical few priorities done, and get out.
